I just caught this..

the 518 rules START OVER at #1..

So.. IF we have been "normalizing scores" and we have been contesting under these rules that would have been incorrect.

Wow.. now.. no question...

Easy to miss.. super confusing.

Scoring for 518 is #11 and #12.. under the 518 rule set.

I would like to have a few more people read the rules and comment. I don't want Darrell or me for that matter pushing a chain up hill if we approach the AMA with this finding.

Looking at the 518 (2016-17) Rule set on the AMA website I concluded the following.

It would take a minimum of 7 people (if you read in) to effectively run a 518 contest.

#1- Contest Director
#2- Flight Line Director
#3- Foul Line Official
#4 Score Keeper
#5- Judge 1
#6- Judge 2
#7- Judge 3

Then..

One might also have:
#8 Judge 4
#9 Judge 5
#10 Safety Inspector

Seems to me the safety inspector should be a mandatory…
Darrell.. Peter.. I have NO IDEA how you guys pulled off these contests. To me looking at this it makes it easy to see how CD burnout would happen.

Thank you for your dedication to the cause….

Its hard enough to get 10 pilots let alone “up-to” 10 people to run the thing.

One could consolidate some of the positions but still lots of work.
I would also contend. That if you had all these positions filled the stress to all involved would be lessened making for a smoother event.
